Flyer for the Hacienda 90 t-shirt. I’ve got one somewhere. I’ll dig it out and post up a pic. From the Acid Grandad’s archive, btw.
We’ve not been this lost for words since we saw that picture of the chap with the TB 303 tattoo.

More contributions from our Facebook friends. This time from Drew Scanlan, who remembered that the Joy rave at the Ashworth Valley was our first party and so scanned the event flyer above (cheers Drew).

Not from the Acid Grandad’s archives, but rather from the archives of Dave Johnston, who contacted us over on that Facebook. Ticket from the final night at the Hacienda. Or in Dave’s own words:
“Thought this might interest you. The last time ever the Hac was open. It has pride of place on the wall. Granted it wasnt a patch on the old days and we used to go in the basement with Dave Haslam, but it was still a good night out”
Many thanks, Dave!
